Sarah has been helping at ATAO in varying degrees since fall of 2018. Born and raised in Western Washington, she dreamed of moving to Alaska to run sled dogs since she was 3 and saw Balto for the first time. After four years in the Navy she accidentally stumbled upon an opportunity to move to Fairbanks and learn to mush. The original plan was to just stay for a year but that 4 1/2 years ago and she hasn’t looked back.

When not helping at the kennel Sarah works as a ski and bike tech. In her free time she likes cooking, woodworking, camping and canoeing.
